Where is the Supreme Court?

From February 1801 to the present day, the Supreme Court met in the city of Washington.

It is located at 1 First Street, Washington, DC 20543.

The Supreme Court sat for the first time in its own building on October 7, 1935.

Lady Justice coloring page

Lady Justice was based on the Greek goddess Themis (honored as clear-sighted) and the Roman goddess Justicia (honored as representing the virtue of justice).

Many countries around the world recognize Lady Justice as a symbol for their courts.

Lady Justice’s sword shows authority, including the power to punish injustice.

It also implies being able to cut through obstacles to get to the facts of a case.

The Judiciary Act worksheet

The Judiciary Act of 1869 fixed the number of Justices at 9, with 1 Chief Justice & 8 Associate Judges.

The President nominates someone for a vacancy on the Court and the Senate votes to confirm the nominee, which requires a majority.

The Constitution states that Justices “shall hold their Offices during good Behaviour.”

This means that the Justices hold office as long as they choose and can only be removed from office by impeachment.

The Gavel coloring page

When the Court is in session, the entrance of the Justices into the Courtroom is announced by the Court Marshal. I highly recommend adding a gavel to the kid’s studies too and letting them take it in turns using it.

Those present, at the sound of the gavel, arise and remain standing until the robed Justices are seated following the traditional cry:

“The Honorable, the Chief Justice and the Associate Justices of the Supreme Court of the United States. Oyez! Oyez! Oyez! All persons having business before the Honorable, the Supreme Court of the United States, are admonished to draw near and give their attention, for the Court is now sitting. God save the United States and this Honorable Court!”
